't be surprised at all but the nice thing about a debate is that i think the moderator, jim lehrer, is going to take a step back and allow the clash between the candidates. i think if romney gives a nonanswer to that question we just talked about obama will say, no, answer that question and that will generate an exciting back and forth and make for a great debate. sfeefrnlt it all goes down that way. james, thank you so much. have fun in denver. >>> coming up, former pennsylvania governor ed rendell joins me live what does he make of the new nbc news/"wall street journal" poll shows president obama and governor romney tied with a among voters would an interest in the leeks. >>> earlier today, the president tweeted 20 years ago today, i married the love of my life and my best friend. happy anniversary, michelle. first lady, twitter replay, thank you for being an incredible partner, friend and father every day. i love you. "ever ask somebody to lend you a foot?" "who thinks about stuff like that?" "vince mahe grew up on two continents... and noticed that wherever you go, people have their hand
barack obama or what does jim lehrer do as the moderator. he will anticipate a broad strokes vision about his tax plan. then the question becomes, how do you pay for it? you're going to cut taxes for everybody. it's going to be deficit neutral. you say you're going to close loopholes, deal with deductions, so let's talk about those deductions. you know, home mortgage deduction, charitable giving deduction, health care deduction. are you willing to tell the middle class -- >> tax deduction. >> are you willing to tell the middle class some of these are off the table? if you are, how do you pay for it? >> he's not going to. he has bucket, 17 grand. is that not good enough for you? >> that's the problem. if he starts getting specific like that, what the right wants to hear is not what 80% of the country wants to hear. that's the fundamental problem he has. >> the bar is pretty low for mr. romney. how does he get through the 90 minutes without any further problems? very quickly. >> i've been a big fan of the fact that mitt romney is the gift that keeps on giving. listen, if mitt romney doesn't
on the exact same date, october 3rd, in 2000. a debate that also was moderated by jim lehrer. >> the fact is the wealthiest may more taxes. if you're a family of four making $50,000 ins massachusetts, you get a 50% tax cut. >> now, here's mr. george bush same day, 2000. same moderator making the same promise. it didn't work then. why would we believe the same day, same party, same kind of political philosophy now? >> we won't believe it because we've lived through it and we found out that it was a fraud. look, what the average middle class family got out of the bush tax cut was equivalent to enough money to buy an extra diet coke a day. who is going to believe mitt romney when he gets up there and said, look, i'm going to take care of the mid class, no tax increases on the middle class, no tax cuts for the wealthy. he's mr. 47%. he's spent the whole year deriding the majority of american hes and catering to people at the very top. i think jared's absolutely right. these numbers not only don't add up, but if romney is ever forced to specify any of these deductions, what about home interest
, the jim demints, newt gingrich. there we see the pictures of all of them. and i wonder if that kind of helps play into the democrats' strategy a littl bit. >> absolutely. i mean, i think one of the things you saw right away was the real republican establishment taking a step away, saying they disavowed him. and right now what we're starting to see is some of the establishment types come back and say they really need missouri to win, but it really feeds into the democratic narrative that todd akin said what all of the other republicans think and just won't say it out loud. >> well, one of the things todd akin said when he made a decision to stay in this race, the strategy that beheard from inside his campaign was that he believed that since the republicans wanted to win control of the senate, he thought when push came to shove at the end, they would start putting money into this race. where does it stand right now? could he win? >> it's very tight. i mean, claire mccaskill is definitely up, but we're going to start seeing. i mean, right now, there's a lot of buys that are happening,
3rd. jim lehrer firing back at the critics who said he let the debate get out of hand. telling politico, i don't consider that being passive, i consider it being effective. it's not my job to control the conversation. if the candidates give me resistance and i let them talk, to me that's being an active moderator, not passive. meanwhile the internet continues to be abuzz about what exactly mitt romney put on the podium at the debate? was it a cheat sheet of talking points, perhaps? the campaign confirming -- it was a handkerchief to keep the powder dry. that's not stopping conspiracy theorists. they're calling it hanky-gate. president obama with an unbelievable record. >>> and mitt romney debuting the softer side, will it make him more likable to the viewers still on the fence? >> the people of california want me to be their governor. and i will do that and nothing else. >> and a little bit later, he changed california politics in a way no one ever thought he could. we'll flash back to see how the austrian bodybuilder turned governator, how it all happened.
